12 oz bottle into a glass

A - Solid dark orange, pours a nice head

S - A little lacking in smell, tough to discern

T - Hoppy and flavorful

M - Bitter, but no overly harsh. Nice after taste!

O - A delightful IPA, quite enjoyable!

I've been coming to this site for a few weeks now, but this is my first crack at reviewing a beer... ever. Honestly, I've only rather recently been introduced to the world of craft beers. Kind of embarrassing, but I've spent most of my beer drinking life (I'm 32) drinking mass produced schwag. To me, beer served one purpose and one purpose only - to get drunk... and to do so cheaply. About a year and a half ago I started to get into wine, which is when I actually began paying attention to what I was drinking. So naturally I started to become more discriminating in my selection of beer. As a recent transplant to central Texas, I discovered several nice local craft brews like Real Ale, Ranger Creek, Freetail, St. Arnold, 512, Live Oak, etc. From there I've discovered other great craft beers like Stone, Sierra Nevada, Boulevard, and New Belgium, and I can't wait to try the thousands of other craft brews out there.
